Maligne Canyon is an hike with many views of the river, and of course the waterfall. The trails are well used, and they can be quite busy. Regardless the hike is 100% worth it

I gave this trail five stars based on beauty only. Way too many people. Bus loads. To avoid the crowd go early or during dinner hour when to tour buses are eating a buffet. Definitely worth the hike. Get off the trail and go down to the river in safe areas.

it's gorgeous. It's a bit busy near the canyon but the spur to 6th bridge is very serene as is the 7h return leg in the loop.

This trail was amazing, full of beautiful sites! Went from one end to the other then back around again. The trail was a little tougher on our way back but all the sites were worth it! Loved it!

We started at the top and hiked down and back up again - I think that's backwards but it's was still pretty.

The 6th bridge is not worth it! But before that, it's awesome!!

Was very disappointed in this hike. You park at the canyon and then walk down into the valley to walk a huge flat bike trail. Not exactly a hike in my books. Would have been nice to know in advance that you park at the canyon and not hike up to it. The canyon itself was amazing but do not recommend the hike.
